The Best Dishwashers for 2021 - Reviews, Ratings & Prices

  • Click here for the updated version of this video: • The Best Dishwash...
    You're probably having a hard time finding a dishwasher. The best dishwasher, in many instances, is the one you can find. Many of the dishwasher manufacturers have supply chain issues from sourcing essential components to COVID-19 in their factories and warehouses.
    In this video, you will learn the best dishwashers at different prices. So, you will see dishwashers between $499 and $2,999. You will also learn how to buy a dishwasher from quietness to washing, drying, racking, and most importantly, what you can buy now. We will also show reliability for each brand based on real service calls logged by our service department last year.
    Some brands are more reliable than others, and repair is a huge problem in the appliance industry despite what you have been told. We logged over 37,000 service calls just last year...and that’s just in the Boston area with people who bought the appliance from us. So, the first part will be how to buy a dishwasher in these troubling times. The second part will be the top 10 for every budget.
    We calculate appliance reliability by looking at the products sold compared to the products serviced by the brand for one year.
    However, with a 10% repair rate, you most likely will need service within five years. You should be mindful of who fixes appliances in your area. Pick a few brands and ask your local servicer what they can fix quickly.
    So which one should you buy?
    It depends on what you are looking for and, unfortunately, what's available. Miele is the best, but expensive. Their other G700 models are worth considering at $1,499 to $2,599 but aren't available.
    The least expensive Beko at $499 looks pretty looks with decent features, quietness and all stainless tubs.
    The best selection is between $900-1199 as Bosch, KitchenAid, and Beko, have good products. Just make sure whatever you buy can be fixed.
    Overall, this is a good list to start your shopping. You have multiple brands at different prices.

    Be careful with the auto opening dry function. If you have a worktop that overhangs you can get problems if you have a wooden worksurface, and you need to dry the area around as it tends to collect condensation.

      Good point. Our friend had a malfunctioning auto opener - it would pop open continuously during a cycle!

    Used dishwashers are a great option too, like older Whirlpool made models including Kenmore kitchenaid inglis amana, the older version of the whirlpools offered a powerclean wash system which by far is the most powerful dishwashing system invented. I have the final generation of the powerclean, runs like new and still looks like new.

    I replaced my GE Profile with a Bosch SHPM78 series two years ago. Install was straightforward. It is very quiet, which is needed in our "open concept" home layout. Loading is a bit tricky, but the cleaning results are quite good. We open the door immediately after the "finished" chime to speed drying. We're satisfied.

    Thanks for an informative video! This is certainly one area of technology that has changed considerably over the last 10-15 years so it's hard to just be a "reliable" consumer because the big names have become less consistent. I would love to just stick to the same brand names but then industry has changed considerably. Without question, actually drying the dishes is a big deal for me. I could care less about the technical reasons why this is considered a "special" feature.

    I've had my Jennair dishwasher going on three years. It's got so many great features. I love the stainless steel inside. I thought my old Maytag was quiet. Our house is open concept and the new Jennair dishwasher never makes noticeable noise. I love the adjustable racks. It takes care of everything. Everything comes out clean and spotless even in my hardest of hard water.

    After waiting just over 3 months, Yale just delivered the Miele G7106SCUSS that replaced a Bosch 850 something. The wait was worth it. The construction of the Miele is more substantial than that of the Bosch, and probably most other dishwashers (the Miele sides, back, and top are covered with SS panels). The Miele can also hold more wide dishes and bowls due to the wider spaced tines and upper utensil rack. One recommendation for Yale is to include a copy of the instruction showing how to open the door of a Miele dishwasher with auto-opening door. I had to Google for instructions.

    We have the KitchenAid and one unexpected downside was that the door is much closer to the floor than other dishwashers we have owed. It's a little further to bend down to load and unload. Also, the open door lines up perfectly with my ankles which has resulted in a few painful interactions.

    • up too late
      up too late Year ago

      Previous dishwashers didn't hold as many dishes. It's a capacity thing. I doubt the higher open door is anything but a thing of the past.

      I use a cane so it’s tricky with the door. Previous kitchenaid was higher on the door.

      I have the same issue with my 11 yr KitchenAid! And yes, the ankle interactions (including a giant gash one time). Thanks for reminding me of this design element as I begin my assessment of next dishwashers!

  • Reform Restore Respect

    You've overlooked countertop dishwashers, a practical solution for small kitchens. I've had mine for 8 months now. Brilliant performance and copes easily with a 6-place setting. Gave up part of countertop space but sooo worth it. Efficient, incredibly quiet and only £200 + £35 to install. 5-star.

    • Yale Appliance
      Yale Appliance  Year ago

      Fair point. Countertop dishwashers may not be as popular here in the states and we don't currently offer any so we don't have any insight there.

    You should add, the higher end kitchenaid have their pro dry feature. Which has a fan built in and works great at getting even plastic dry.

      I love my Miele. No issues at all. My father has the quietest dishwasher and it’s a Whirlpool. We don’t even know if it’s on. My friend had a Bosch and it took forever to finish a cycle and the tub cracked.

    I agree with him wholeheartedly - the best dishwasher is the one you can find. After only 4 years, my Bosch 800 died. I had no idea how much I would miss the racking design (especially the third rack for flatware ). I ended up with the floor model of a Kemore Elite that was being discontinued. Overall I like the Kenmore. I do not care for how the racks are designed. My plates constantly want to fall over and dish capacity is half of what the Bosch had. However, it does the job - it washes the dishes. I cook a lot and have no interest in doing all the dishes by hand. Thank you for the tips for my next dishwasher ~

      Kenmore doesn't manufacture a dishwasher.. they relabel others dishwashers. So depending on what year/model you got it's someone else's

  • Susan V
    Susan V Year ago +6

    I had a high end kitchenaide....a finicky creature. I had to run hot water into the line prior to using every time. Yes it was quiet, but I found it less effective than the base Kenmore I replaced. I've since replaced all appliances with GE and I'm thrilled with the GE. Quiet and effective.

    • Kerry Desilets
      Kerry Desilets Year ago +1

      The first KitchenAid appliance I ever owned was their double oven stove and it's terrible. Even the KitchenAid manual can opener I bought broke (the handle snapped clean off!). I have been extremely disappointed with KitchenAid and would not purchase any of their products.

    • Kapp Davies
      Kapp Davies Year ago

      I did all GE kitchen too as part of my remodel. They’ve done a great job paring down silliness and focusing on core functionality. Oh and the new designs are gorgeous. I love the 3rd rack, bottle jets, and interior lights. This is on top of dishes coming out literally spotless.
      Availability has been SUCH an issue though, so if you need an important appliance right away, you are out of luck :-(. I really hope they can get that fixed soon. I’m sad they’re losing business to sub par models.
      My brother caved and bought a different brand. He is currently on his 4th dishwasher in 6 months. He still hates his dishwasher with a passion, but got tired of service calls and return hassles. He would have bought GE but couldn’t afford to wait months like me with his little kids being home all day during SIP.
      Good luck to GE and I hope their supply chain issues settle down soon.

      I too find GE builds their appliances to the KISS principle. I'm not impressed by an appliance you can turn on with your phone, or that plays music.

  • frenchustube
    frenchustube Year ago +4

    I have a Bosch for many years and i love it. I like the stainless tank, easy to use features. Normal - half load- heavy load and delay start. That is all i need. I have put my stem wine glasses at the bottom rack on half load and came out super clean. I would not buy another dishwasher with a grinder at the bottom again. Nothing but trouble if some olive pit or piece of glass get in it! It broke my last dishwasher.

  • Pavel Gajdik
    Pavel Gajdik 2 years ago

    Thermador and Asko are pretty much not available in most European countries, KitchenAid is very rare to see with the exception of UK.
    Miele is rare because of being too expensive or lacking options/functions and still being much more expensive compared to other brands.
    Probably most common are Bosh/Siemens, AEG/Electrolux, Beko as cheap brand.
    Currently using higher model Siemens past 8 or so years and probably getting AEG as next.

    We've had a HORRIFIC time with out KITCHENAID DISHWASHER AND FRIDGE. Both have had several failures (all major). The main motor on our dishasher was good for only 2 years. Then seals went bad after slowly leaking and ruining our cabinets. A real POS and a nightmare. We are going to try our luck wiht Miele which we should have done from day one I think.

    Just bought and installed a Kitchen Aid dishwasher model KDFE204KPSO, couldn’t get the installer to show up and install it. Did it myself. Works great and so quiet we have to get our ears within inches to hear anything in a quiet room. Cleans excellently, but we don’t use the typical dish soap they sell in stores. Get our professional soap on line.

      Mieles are built to last at least 20 years, while the industry average is just 10-12. This is all according to The Wirecutter, a review site owned by The New York Times. Of course Miele is a more expensive brand, though, so it’s a trade-off.

  • falcon664
    falcon664 Year ago

    My old GE dishwasher/sink combo made in 1938 had no heat element for drying. The door popped open at the end of the cycle. Unfortunately, it was a top loader, and if you were air drying your hand washed crystal when the dishwasher finished, it could be quite ugly. A mistake you only do once. (And, no, I didn't, I was warned).

  • Sparklander

    We love our Kitchenaid dishwasher. It far out cleans the Bosch dishwasher we had previously. Fewer adjustments on the racks are better because the clips wear out and fall off.

  • Jon Kirkwood

    My 15-year old Kitchenaid has become infirmed. What I like most about it is the availability of parts and the ease of replacing the parts. It's time to replace it, because the next repair involves the motherboard.

    I bought a cheap integrated Beko in 2016 in Ireland and it was excellent. I would buy another Beko in a heartbeat. In my new home here in Spain I have a dishwasher by a company called TEKA. I have only owned it 4 months and the rinse aid is leaking. Also the layout of the drawer is horrible and seems to hold half what the Beko did. Also, the Beko could get nearly everything clean using the 30 min ECO setting. Not so with the TEKA. I would also consider a Bosch as I have owned many of their appliances over the years with good luck.

    I read in a NY Times Wirecutter review of Bosch dishwashers that they have bitumen (asphalt) coating for sound dampening purposes. After some research on steel tub dishwashers I learned that this was an issue for some people creating bad odors when it was heated up. I subsequently searched on bitumen and dishwashers and learned that most stainless steel tub dishwashers use this potentially toxic coating to dampen noise. For this reason I'm considering a higher end plastic tub dishwasher (Whirlpool) with nylon racks rather than more concerning pvc racks. Has this home health aspect of dishwasher construction ever come up as an issue?

    • Yale Appliance
      Yale Appliance  Year ago

      We've never had an "issue" per say... Appliance odors are always an issue for anyone who has a sensitivity to them. For most of us the odor goes away in a couple days or so. More severe cases it could take longer.

    The most disappointing dishwasher I have had is Bosch. It didn't last a year and the part/service call to fix it was so expensive that I just bought a new dishwasher instead.

  • Peter S

    Many older dishwashers (and a few cheap new ones) have a vent on the front near the top, and moist warm air is released into the room while drying (except warm air rises and caused minor damage to the underside of my cheapo pressboard arborite countertop in that spot).
    Lately it has become more fashionable to hide that vent on the side of the door. How nice, now moist air is released onto the adjacent expensive wood cabinetry. Will that ruin the wood finish there after a few years? Will it be easy to match the repaired wood finish to the rest of the cabinets, or will this fashionable venting cause unfashionable permanent cabinet damage?

      We bought the Kitchenaid KDTM604 and it has a plastic oval shaped vent that comes out at the bottom of the door and directs the air straight out into the room. No moist air going anywhere near the cabinets.

      European or condensation-dry machines do not have an external vent. The steam collects inside the machine and drains out. So if you are worried about your adjacent cabinets I would suggest going with a unit with a condensation dry.

    Thank you for your great video. I knew I was about to have an “appliance mutiny” since they are all from 1996 or older. Well, the dishwasher bit the dust yesterday evening. So today I went out and got a Bosch 500 series. I was going to get the 800 series but they said it would take two weeks to six months to get it. Maybe. I looked at my husband and said the 500 series is in stock, looks good. Doing your homework is important and the appliance shortage is real. Fastest shopping that we have done in a long time. I think the refrigerator is the next appliance to give up its will to cool.

    I was able to buy american made parts, locally for my 15 y.o. kitchen aide refrigerator, made by whirlpool. You might go into the reason why some of these brands are unavailable. Because parts are made in China. Avoid Korean appliances and g.e. because they make the parts in China. Buy the whirlpool umbrella of brands.

    Our 10 year old GE just flooded our house. Got a new $1100 GE with turbo drying. The drying feature adds 60-90 minutes to the cycle and the dishes come out very wet. Any concave surface that can hold a tiny bit of water will all have puddles.

    Thermador has had a few recalls on their dishwashers. Also if you live in Chicago good luck finding someone to service any of your Thermador products. While Thermador will provide you with a list of repair centers near you, you will quickly discover the centers are no where near you and the ones that are, no longer service Chicago. Same goes for Bosch.

      Depends on what you value. The new KitchenAid's are great. They are quiet and have a ton of storage capacity. The Bosch (assuming you purchase one with the CrystalDry feature) has the best dry on the market. The Bosch will also sit flush to your cabinet.

    You didn't cover what some would consider the most important thing. The utensil holders. When I bought a new machine I had to take the old holder out and put it in the new machine, because the new machine's were super small and wouldn't hold a lot of the utensils that I use. I also had a utensil holder in the door of my old machine that I always used, that I couldn't put in the new machine.

    • Yale Appliance

Of course l cannot find a Bosch 300 dishwasher anywhere. I will look into Beko. Thanks so much for sharing.

      I’ve also been brand loyal to GE until my 9 year old machine had a major leak beneath the motor and made a mess in my basement! My girlfriend has a Bosch she can’t kill (Working on 30 yrs old) I’m wanting Bosch but just can’t get my head around the idea that dishes might not be dry….. if I don’t want to hand wash why would I want to hand dry? 🤔

    Done with whirlpool/Maytag! My 3 yr old dishwashers plastic cheap push buttons are broken. 2 tiny plastic clips broke off but the whole expensive panel has to be replaced. Called them but they refused to replace the part. I would have to pay 200 plus service. Thanks for reviewing these other brands .

    The only dishwasher in America that offers a heating element and a food grinder is General Electric. Some other American brands, like Maytag, used to offer both, but have since eliminated the grinder and now force you to deal with a filter that must be periodically cleaned out manually, like the Euro dishwashers. Thankfully, GE makes simple looking dishwasher designs, and since almost every dishwasher look similar, it's a no-brainer, the one with the least amount of maintenance, and comparable performance, wins. If you want a heating element, and a grinder in your dishwasher, GE is the only way to go now.

    😂 I love your Clip-Share Channel ! I’m going to be doing a complete tear out of our kitchen in our 10th floor condominium in Fort Lauderdale in the next 8-12 months. Right now my wife lives there but I don’t, I want all appliances to be matched together and look identical. That makes a huge difference. Unfortunately we only have access to electrical power and I’m the chef 👨‍🍳 -
    I passionately dislike the electric range and cook top - I need to read more about electric ovens as they are clearly different then gas ….Subscribed and thank you 😊

      My girls and I put a tea cup size glass or smaller juice glass filled with vinegar in the top rack and leave it throughout the cycles. Our water is hard. Now we don't even have to use rinse aid. Leave the glass upright of course. Even the dishwasher is clean everytime.

    • Yale Appliance
      Yale Appliance  Year ago

      So there are many dishwasher companies who offer water softeners as a solution. We love Miele, Bosch, Beko, and KitchenAid as dishwasher brands but you need to make sure you get the one that has the most features you need.

    What's the general opinion on Maytag dishwashers? I had a Bosch in a house I just sold. I lived in the house for seven years. I bought the Bosch which was like $1000 at the time. I just moved in to a different house and I want to replace the ugly, white appliances with stainless steel units. I'm looking at a Maytag dishwasher that's like $750. It has good reviews. I've been partial with the Maytag brand for my clothes washer and dryer because they've always been very reliable. But I have zero experience with Maytag dishwashers.

    • Yale Appliance
      Yale Appliance  Year ago

      Maytag makes a decent dishwasher. Not very feature rich and fairly dated technology comparatively. Look to their big brother, KitchenAid (also part of the Whirlpool Corp) for the most amount of user-friendly technology.

    In fall of 2018 the dishwasher in the house we’d moved into three weeks earlier stopped working. We replaced with a GE gdt695ssj4ss. We’re pleased with it but it seems like it’s gotten a little louder over the years. Is this possible?
    Apart from cleaning the filters regularly-and much more frequently since we cook every meal at home-do you have recommendations for keeping them in peak operating condition?
    Also: I was today-years old when I discovered that the middle rack can be lowered.

    • Yale Appliance
      Yale Appliance  2 years ago +1

      I guess sit would depend on what "getting louder" means. If it's noises you are hearing throughout that you did not before then something could have come loose over time. If it persists, then you may want to have someone look at it to be sure.

    I bought a new whirlpool a couple week's ago . Right off the bat ,it won't drain. So I go back to lowes to see about exchange , said they would. But when I get there the manager says she doesn't know what Im talking about and they don't exchange or do returns after 7 days on bent and dent appliances. So I saved three hundred bucks on a dishwasher with according to the Google videos, that I've watched. It is a clogged drain .which is a simple to fix even if i have to change the pump.. So thanks Google for your help and screw lowes for your manager lying her ass off and heads up Home Depot i need a new everything else ! Integrity is not something you can find these days !!

    I’ve been waiting for a year to buy a new dishwasher. They keep telling me it’s basically a crapshoot waiting to receive them. So I keep waiting for the situation to get better but it doesn’t seem to be. Now summer is coming and I’m not going to have to stick around home in case my dishwasher shows up. I am hand washing dishes right now. I may be hand washing forever. When they are finally available I’ll have the information I need thanks to your videos. I just keep watching them in hopes that one day I’ll be able to plunk down my money for a much needed appliance.

      Look for a dishwasher assembled in North America of American parts. I'm told they are available. The Korean brand and anything g.e. is made of Chinese parts. Which will also be a problem when you need replacement parts cause they'd rather sell you another dishwasher.

    Is the pull out racks on kitchen aid better then before? We currently have a kitchen aid dishwasher. The rollers on the top rack fails 85% of the time now and it’s been leaking but we can’t figure out why. It’s an older one, with our kitchen remodel we changing out all appliances.
    I’m about to order our appliances because I know it may take time for them to come in. We were going Bosch 800 because of the current issues with our kitchen aid. Your video has me second guessing that.
    Would you do kitchen aid over Bosch? Bosch had me with the adjustable 3rd rack.

    • up too late
      up too late Year ago

      Kitchen aid is assembled in Mexico of American parts, which are available for many years. Bosch is made of Chinese parts. ( I think assembled in Korea) Double check my facts on Bosch, but that should be all you need to know. I wish this video covered "service calls/reliability" in more meaningful depth that takes into account the current difficulty.

    • Yale Appliance
      Yale Appliance  2 years ago

      One big difference between KitchenAid and Bosch is the overall depth. If you're putting a custom panel on the dishwasher, and have standard depth cabinets, go Bosch. Would recommend you find a store where you can get your hands on a new KitchenAid to try out those racks for yourself.

    I want one that's really loud and really cleans the dishes! If I must hand wash them first then what's the point?
    The "smarter" an appliance is the faster they break. Integrated circuits + water+ heat is a recipe for malfunction. I try not to buy anything that's smarter than me. OK I'm kind of joking but there's truth in there.

    3:05 lmao We have a POS GE and it doesn't dry at all (even though it's heated). It has the jet dry spot but the hole is so small it takes forever to fill. It also needs to be filled in only a few washes. I'm also not partial to chemicals be left on the dishes. So back to 3:05, I open the door now as soon as it's done. I also grab and shake each rack hard to shake off excess water. Now if I could figure out how to stop the dishwasher from etching the glasses.

    • 4Veritas
      4Veritas Year ago

      Consider the GE GSD2100VWW. It is the cheapest and most basic model and dries fantastic. I bought a mid priced and energy efficient model that did not dry my dishes. This older model which is still available is great. The controls are electro mechanical so there is no panel to go that costs a fortune to replace. The only thing is that it did not come with the sound reducing "blanket." I took that off of my old machine and had it placed on and it is as quiet as the mid-priced model.

    I have a 12 yr old Kitchenaid that no longer dries and control panel issues. And the dishes/glasses while clean, SMELL BAD after the cycle is done. What aspect of new machines makes sure I dont get that smell?

    • Yale Appliance
      Yale Appliance  Year ago

      Hard to comment on the smell without knowing where it's coming from. The new KitchenAids do have an extremely effective dry and use higher wash temperatures. You also use a rinse agent (aids in drying) in the new units because the tub is now stainless steel (no bacteria as you would have in a plastic tub). All those things should help.

    On noise levels. Nowhere do you say that 10 decibels is 10 times louder and 5 decibels is almost 4x louder. the difference between the quiets at 39 and another recommended one at 55 is about 50 times louder! Decibels is a log scale and every 3 more decibels is 2x louder. think carefully about noise levels.
